According to a report from Torino Granata (as translated by Sport Witness), Tottenham Hotspur may have to spend upwards of €10m (£8.5m) if the club want to land Torino midfielder, Sasa Lukic, in the summer.
Lukic has been one of the few bright sparks of what has been a season to forget for Torino, with the club currently battling to preserve their place in the Italian top flight.
Tutto Mercato Web reported last week that Spurs have identified the 24-year-old as a potential target to bolster their options in midfield.
The report claimed that Crystal Palace could also return with an offer for the Serbian after seeing their bid in January turned down by Torino.
Torino Granata now report that the Serie A club will soon have to make a decision on whether to renew Lukic’s contract or whether to cash-in on him.
The report asserts that should Torino avoid the drop this season, the club’s hierarchy are unlikely to be interested in any offer for the midfielder that is not ‘double digit’ (as in €10m+).
Spurs Web Opinion
A central midfielder partner for Hojbjerg is not a priority for Spurs this summer given the way Skipp has developed at Norwich and the way Ndombele has adapted to a deeper role over recent months.
However, we might be in the market for central midfield cover since Winks’ and Sissoko’s days at the club look to be numbered. Perhaps Spurs are looking at Lukic as a bargain squad option to add depth to the midfield area.
